  • So what makes the type of courseware special? Well, we think that it teaches students that science is not just mastery of what is already known, but an exploration of the unknown. We actually believe that this is what learning itself is all about.
  • The courseware is also centred around compelling questions that motivate students, such as, are we alone in the universe? There are challenging problems that contextualise the learning. They are authentic problems that real scientists are working on right now at the frontier of human knowledge.
  • The courseware also gets students to appreciate the solutions to real problems in science do not fit into tidy disciplinary bins. The courseware has a transdisciplinary approach whilst mapping closely to introductory science courses, and the learning objectives faculty are used to teaching.
